I have been fortunate so far in my career to work with some amazing physicians. In this piece, Dr. Mamta Swaroop and I share the major themes of the inaugural Women In Medicine Symposium. Dr. Swaroop is one of the most amazing physicians I have met thus far in my career, and I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her on this conference. I look forward to many collaborations in the future.

I am a practicing, board-certified hematology/oncology physician in Chicago. I speak on topics ranging from the impact of social media on healthcare, how physicians can utilize social media, how to write Op-eds in the medical world, gender equity and barriers to career advancement, and topics in GI oncology and immunotherapy. My goal is to explain complicated topics in simple terms. I also enjoy writing and you can find some of my writing on this site. I am a mother to three amazing kids and married to a gastroenterologist. I look forward to connecting with you.
